From the Desk of Mrs. Rounds
Another week of fun in the books! I hope your weekend is fabulous as we squeak out the last little bit of summer weather.
Please keep reading for important updates and information.
As always, thank you for entrusting Bridge with your children's education.
See you Monday!
Fresh Fruit and Veggie Program (FFVP)
Dress Down Days - LAST Friday of the Month
We have been lenient for the first couple weeks of school; however, starting next week, students who are not wearing dress code appropriate clothes will be asked to change or have their parents bring them the appropriate clothing.
Acadience (DIBELS) Reading Data
Progress Reports Coming Soon
You can use the benchmark data shown on our website to compare your child's Acadience and Imagine Learning scores to the expected level of performance for their current grade. The benchmark scores are found using the STUDENT DATA icon and scrolling partway down the page.
Parking Lot Reminders
The clearing of the parking lot is down to 14 minutes at 3:30 and 10 minutes at 4:30 pm. Friday is still a little longer as every student leaves at 1:30 pm. Your continued patience and courtesy to parking lot attendants and other drivers will help clear the parking lot quickly and safely.
Please help us keep kiddos safe by NOT parking on the west side of Midland Drive and running across the street. We cannot safely escort families across the road as we are not allowed to stop traffic. We have contacted the city again to see about getting a crossing guard to help on Midland Drive. Captain Smith is in charge of the crossing guards for Roy City. Perhaps your own phone calls or emails will speed up the process.
Don't forget, parents are ALWAYS invited to volunteer to help in the parking lot.Just show up 15 minutes before school is out, grab a yellow vest and ask the office how you can assist.
This Week's Highlight - Math Talks
FREE Meals for Uniformed Military and First Responders - Lunch for Safety Program
Parents can donate to this program by dropping a check at the office with the notation "Lunch for Safety" or by using the DONATE icon on our website and paying online.
Volunteers at Bridge
Visit our Volunteer Page for more information and to track your volunteer hours. Families who meet the 30 hour suggested amount of volunteer time will have their name placed on our Volunteer Pond in the front foyer.
Lost & Found - Broken Record
FREE / REDUCED Meals Application
FREE / REDUCED status provides the school with extra funding to help support our Title I at-risk program which includes morning supervision and BASE as well as intervention support for struggling students. This past year it also provided additional assistance for some students in the form of an electronic debit card. It also ensures that if we are no longer able to offer free meals, parents are already qualified for free/reduced status.
Instructions for accessing ASPIRE can be found on our website or by calling the office (801)499-5180.
Bridge is ALWAYS in need of great subs! If you are interested in subbing at Bridge - lunchroom, recess, classrooms, special education, etc. please apply today through Ready2Teach using the button above. We pay $12 for all substitute positions.
Students are learning about REFLECTION. This trait teaches students to review their learning to see what works and what ways they can improve.
Work with your students to practice these I WILL statements:
- Look back
- Listen to feedback
- Learn about myself
- Plan my next steps
- Reflect often
Our mission is to empower students to take ownership of their own learning. By learning, practicing and embracing these visible learning traits, students will have the skills needed to become accountable for their own lifelong learning. You can find the six Visible Learning traits on our website at Visible Learning
The mission of Bridge Elementary is to provide students with a personalized learning experience and empower them to take personal ownership and accountability for their own academic performance.
